Original Abstract

The paper is focused on the problems of the fatigue behaviour, failure and resistance of reinforced pre-stressed concrete railway sleepers, developed and verified continuously in the period of several last years. The results of fatigue loading tests are presented for the sleepers for both wide and narrow track gauge. Test results have been evaluated using the criteria for the acceptance based on the load corresponding to the prescribed crack width and the load at the moment of total fracture.
